Currently Co-Headlining Across the USA with Primus Followed By North American Headline Tour with Dinosaur Jr. As Special Guests This September

Today, Brann Dailor—co-vocalist, drummer, and co-founder of GRAMMY® Award-winning heavy rock juggernaut  Mastodon releases his first-ever solo track entitled “Red Death,” inspired by DC Comics’ new graphic novel DARK DAYS: THE ROAD TO METAL available now in comic book shops and in bookstores and digitally on Tuesday May 22, 2018. This also marks Dailor’s first collaboration with DC.

DARK DAYS: THE ROAD TO METAL is written and illustrated by a rockstar including Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV and sensational artists Jim Lee, Andy Kubert, and John Romita Jr, Leading directly into DC’s blockbuster event DARK NIGHTS: METAL, this is an epic story that spans generations, featuring METAL prequel stories DARK DAYS: THE FORGE and DARK DAYS: THE CASTING, as well as classic DC tales that built the foundations of METAL – FINAL CRISIS issues #6 and #7, THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #1, plus issues #38 and #39 of BATMAN from DC’s “New 52” era, NIGHTWING #17 (from the current series) and more!

Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning icon Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Twenty-One Pilots, The Regrettes) and film composer and former Marilyn Manson guitarist Tyler Bates (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 & 2, Deadpool), “Red Death” spotlights Dailor’s instantly recognizable vocals and intriguing delivery as he paints a musical portrait of one of the nightmare Batmen from the Dark Multiverse of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, a twisted, malevolent amalgamation of DC heroes Batman and The Flash.

“Red Death” features Bates on guitar with Elizondo on bass and Gil Sharone from Dillinger Escape Plan, Puscifer behind the drum kit. Its dark lyrics remain befitting of the graphic novel’s themes. “Red Death” showcases yet another facet of one of rock music’s most prolific forces.

Brann said of track, “Super stoked to be part of this amazing musical collaboration, always been a fan of anything Batman related and DC Comics as a whole, so the chance to be connected to that universe is a dream come true.”

At present, Mastodon is on a massiver summer co-headline tour with Primus that just kicked off earlier this month. In September, they join forces with Dinosaur Jr. on the road for the very first time.

Mastodon also just shared the animated music video for the track “Clandestiny.” Spin called the visual, “inventive, and Guitar World fittingly described it as, “Wild.Within just two weeks, it crossed the 200K threshold on YouTube. “Clandestiny” can be found on their seventh full-length album, Emperor of Sand—out now.
